Democrascope is a cine lab inviting you to help define the moment.
We are looking for short videos on the theme of democracy in genres
ranging from documentary to experimental, narrative,
performance-based, sci-fi, etc. The videos will be programmed into
Democrascope an installation drawing connections between the early
history of cinema as public spectacle (such as Montreal’s Ouimetoscope
inviting people to “Venez en foule” – come en masse) and contemporary
crowd-sourced media culture.

A typical film program at the turn of the 20th century included
politics, news items, human interest stories, anecdotal observations
of every day life, of nature, of eccentric events. The films had
titles like Trouble in a Basement, The Czar, The  Last Collar Button,
Niagara Falls, From Socialism to Nihilism.

The exhibition will take place at Joyce Yahouda Gallery Montreal
October 11-November 5.
